Human Academy conducts Japanese Language Education for foreign students

Our idea of internationalization is not just that Japanese people study foreign languages, or go overseas or know a different culture. As a school authorized by the Association for the Promotion of Japanese Language Education, we are committed to Japanese language education for foreign students at our campuses in Tokyo, Osaka and Saga. Our goal is to increase international understanding and use of the Japanese language. As the range of international exchange increases, we believe that through this kind of education we have an important role to play.

Principal Introduction

Principal of Tokyo Campus Kazuko Tsuji

Human Academy Japanese Language School Tokyo campus was established in 1991 and we celebrates 24th year in business this year. During this time, many people learned Japanese at our school. Some of them are still working in Japan now, whereas the others went back to their countries and work as using Japanese language.
There are various purposes to studying Japanese depending on each learner - to go to a college or a university in Japan, to work for a Japanese company, to know Japanese culture more widely and deeply, to live in Japan, or etc. Although their goals are different, they have a common challenge, which is "to be able to use the Japanese language" and the only way to achieve it is to practice. We will support for them "to be able to use the Japanese language" with the effective practice. People will never forget what they have worked really hard.
In recent years, Japanese companies became to actively recruit foreigners, so Japanese learners are increasing. What you are asked in a job interview is "what you could do by utilizing the Japanese language skills". Even though you told an interviewer that you passed N2, if the interviewer didn't know what you could do with it, they wouldn't know what kind of contribution you could make for their company. The number of companies that engage in Japanese training after hiring successful applicants of N2 is also increasing. "What you can do by utilizing your Japanese language skills" is now regarded as the most important matter. Hence, the theme of our everyday's lesson is "what you become to be able to do today".
In addition, in the Human Academy, there are temporary staffing sector, vocational schools, and a lot of bases in foreign countries. We will continue to support for everyone to learn Japanese and take an active part in the world as using the Japanese language.

Principal of Osaka Campus Yuko Yamamoto

Human Academy Japanese Language School was first established in Osaka in 1987.
Since a long time ago, overseas students have been coming to Japan, bringing their dreams for the future, hopes, and strong will with them. They need to start from learning Japanese, and our Osaka school has supported their studies for over 30 years, helping them fulfill their future dreams and hopes.
Osaka is one of Japan's most fascinating cities. Home to Kansai International Airport, known as the entrance to Japan's west skies, many people from all over the world, especially Asia, comes to visit Osaka. Osaka's foreign visitor count, which was about 2.6 million in 2013, passed 10 million visitors in 2017. Nowadays, over a third of foreigners coming to Japan visit Osaka. Despite being a modern metropolis, it has a friendly local characteristic towards foreigners. Osaka people just love to talk and eat. It's the perfect place for making friends in Japan. From Osaka, you can also ride a train for 30 minutes to visit old Kyoto or Nara, which has plenty of temples and shrines designated as World Cultural Heritages, or the port city bursting with exoticism, Kobe. There's no other region in Japan where cities with unique history and culture representing Japan such as Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe are all located so close to each other. Osaka, Kansai is the perfect place to learn Japan's history and culture.
In Osaka, blessed with an amazing environment to learn Japanese, we, Human Academy Japanese Language School, give our best to support you so you can learn Japanese as fast as possible to obtain a chance for a successful future.

Principal of Saga Campus Kazumi Mattori

Human Academy Japanese Language School Saga is Japan's first "industry/academia/government" Japanese language school with the support of Saga City, Saga Prefecture.

Our school offers a variety of study with the careful Japanese instruction tailored to each student. Needless to say, classes are the all basis of schools, and the aim is to establish and improve the academic ability of all enrolled students, starting from the enhancement of daily classes.

In particular, when it comes to language acquisition, we believe that understanding the culture behind the language, interest in cultural situations, and the attitude of trying to understand deeper are all very important factors.

Saga prefecture is a place where many great figures who enormously contributed to the advancement of Japan were born during the chaotic era of the Meiji Restoration at the end of the Tokugawa period. On top that, we have variety of local cultures - historical heritages such as the Yoshinogari archeological site, pottery culture including Arita, and abundance of nature.

By volunteering for various events in local areas, the students get in touch with rich sensibility and beautiful Japanese language of local people, understand different cultures, and practice intercultural coexistence - thus having new motivation for learning everyday.

Eventually, we hope that the international students will make continuous efforts everyday to realize each of their own goal - "Starting with the acquired Japanese language, contribute to the society through getting employed in Japan and starting a business in their home country with the knowledge and skills gained from the experience of working in Japan."
